Construction Management (BS)

Our four-year Construction Management program is designed to better meet the needs of the construction industry. With additional field experience, graduates will assume positions of superintendent, project manager, estimator, or field engineer in commercial, institutional, industrial, residential, or civil construction.

If you hold an associate’s degree from our Architectural & Building Engineering Technology, Civil & Environmental Engineering Technology, or Construction Management programs, but want to expand your knowledge and career options, this program is for you. Graduates of other similar programs may request a transcript review during the application process.
